Doppelmayr in Bolivia:


Next Milestone
stadt

Línea Azul in El Alto is another milestone for Bolivia’s infrastructure. It is the first line that the DOPPELMAYR / GARAVENTA  Group completed in phase II of the world’s most extensive urban cable transport network. It now provides the UPEA University in El Alto with a connection to the network. Bolivia’s Vice President Álvaro García Linera and Mi Teleférico ceremoniously opened the longest line in the network on March 3, 2017.

 

Following three cable transport lines that have been linking the cities of La Paz and El Alto in Bolivia since 2014, Línea Azul inaugurated the second phase in the creation of the world’s largest cable transport network in March 2017. The blue line lies entirely within El Alto, extending directly from the existing Línea Roja and providing more of El Alto’s residential quarters with a connection to La Paz. 

Línea Azul crosses the biggest street market in Latin America and also serves El Alto University; it is an important means of transport for citizens of both cities. Bolivia’s President Evo Morales showed that he was impressed during a test ride in 2016: “Many thanks to the company DOPPELMAYR from Austria, a good partner, a good investment!”


In addition to Línea Azul, five more cable transport lines are planned and mostly already being implemented for phase II. After completion, the cable transport network will boast nine lines with a combined length of 30 kilometers (18 ½ mi) and 26 stations. The existing lines in La Paz and El Alto have transported 75 million passengers to date. ts

 

 

The largest urban cable car network in the world currently comprises four cable transport lines: Línea Azul (Blue line), Línea Roja (Red line) Línea Amarilla (Yellow line) and Línea Verde (Green line).Five more routes are planned. (Dashed lines).
